Cardinal Burke’s pastoral visit: we give thanks to God for His Eminence’s visit, and continue to pray for Cardinal Burke and his intentions. Photographs of the various liturgies and events are now on the Parish website. Copies of His Eminence’s homily and talk will be made available soon.

Christus Rex Pilgrimage: those not attending the pilgrimage may wish to attend highlights, in particular the Saturday Mass in honour of Our Lady (at approximately 11 am in a forest grove in the hamlet of Campbelltown), and the final Mass at 3 pm Sunday, in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Bendigo. Sunday Masses for the Newman Parish will be at the usual times; the 10.30 am Mass will be a Low Mass with organ. The Act of Dedication to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (Plenary Indulgence attached) will be prayed after each Mass.

There is no EF Mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral this Wednesday; an additional Mass will be offered at St Aloysius’ at 6 pm. The Cathedral Mass resumes on 31st October. There will be no 10 am Mass this Saturday (27th October).

November Masses: In November, the month of the Holy Souls, we especially pray for the Faithful departed. Above all, we have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered for their eternal repose. For this purpose, November envelopes are now available in the vestibule. The minimum stipend for one November Mass (by Archdiocesan law) is $20. Put the names of the deceased you wish to be remembered on the envelopes provided and place them in either Sunday collection. Please submit these in October, to ensure that the dead are remembered at all the Masses of November. General Mass intention envelopes are also available in the vestibule, to arrange for Mass to be offered for any other intention.

Solemn Mass will be celebrated at 7 pm both on All Saints’ Day (Thursday, 1st November) & All Souls’ Day (Friday, 2nd November), in addition to Low Mass at 7 am & 10 am both days.

October – month of the Holy Rosary: let us especially make an effort to pray the Rosary daily in October, especially in the family, adding the “October” prayer to St Joseph for the Church. Our intentions should include the purification of the Church, Her triumph over all external and internal enemies, and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
